Everyone knows that when you buy a brand new car, it loses a lot of its value almost immediately. That is why choosing used is a smart financial decision. But, there are so many more other great reasons to buy used. Read below to learn more.


Thanks to depreciation, used cars cost a lot less than their new counterparts, even when they are only a couple of years old. In fact, a car just one year old could have already lost about 30% of its initial value. This means many used-car buyers are able to afford a much nicer car than they could if they chose something new.


Because insurance premiums are based on a car's value, a cost of insurance for a used car should be lower. Once a car is old enough, you can opt to drop certain aspects of car insurance.


Thanks to ever-lengthening car warranties, many used cars, especially if you choose a Certified Pre-Owned car, will come with a warranty. Just check on the details of the warranty before you complete your purchase.


Because of improved manufacturing processes, cars are more reliable than ever. You don't have to worry that the used car you bought is going to start falling apart a week after you buy it. Furthermore, you can check a vehicle's history report through companies like Carfax to see if a car has been in any accidents, how many owners it has had, and some of its service history.


Because you aren't limited to one or two model years, you have a nearly endless supply of options when buying a used car. If there is a certain color or feature that is no longer in production, you should still be able to find it in a used car.
